The Best Community of Tech Entrepreneurs in MK
Driving innovation, education and growth in the tech business community of Milton Keynes and SEMLEP regions.
Industry- Leading Technology Forum
A TECHNOLOGY HUB AT THE FOREFRONT OF INNOVATION
The technology and digital industries are two of the UK’s most promising sectors that have led to huge foreign investments in the country in the past decade. The tech sector is one of the few which can withstand setbacks even at the time of the global economic crisis and support the economy by providing employment, generating revenue, and driving change through innovation. Local tech businesses and professionals all play an important part in collectively supporting the country’s economy. However, they do not always have access to the right people and resources to help them develop their ideas productively. They often face challenges such as:
Lack of a Suitable Platform for Promotion of New Technology
Inadequate Mentoring Support
Lack of Adequate Funding Options
Insufficient Knowledge About Available Support
Insufficient Opportunities to Network with Experts
HOW CAN BIZTECH HELP?

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING
I came across the Biztech Forum about 18 months after starting my Engineering Consulting Company. I was still finding my feet and had been doing the rounds of various networking groups. From the first meeting I attended the Biztech Forum was different! Noteably, the meeting was about arranging Events for members to inform and educate them about business and technology topics, not businesses (mostly irrelevant to me) trying to sell to each other! 11 years on and I am a Director of the Forum and have found great value not only in the Events, but most particularly in being able to collaborate, associate and work with like minded peers and leaders be they with technical, entrepreneurial, education, business or any other background.
I joined Biztech because I saw an opportunity to help more Tech Business owners in the region. The Biztech Board is full of enthusiastic and very experienced tech leaders and their passion and vision to helping others was the main reason that I joined. My membership has helped me to expand my network and make quality connections within the tech sector. I look forward to supporting not only Biztech but also its members and stakeholders for many years to come.
We joined Biztech to discover more about and engage with the community of technology businesses within the Milton Keynes region. We benefitted immediately from the events that Biztech presents that address a range of highly relevant subjects and that have helped us to feel very much at the centre of the local community of businesses.
It became apparent however that there was much more than Biztech could do to help the region’s technology businesses to thrive, for example by looking for ways to address the shortage of young people choosing a career as an engineer. It was a great privilege therefore to be able to help establish the massively successful ‘Engineering your future’ Biztech event held annually for schools.
We’d love to hear from you! Get in touch with us for more information about becoming a Biztech member.
